Honoring the supply chain’s best and brightest, Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s “Pros to Know” include professionals proactively working to improve their business’s functions in a number of categories—including manufacturing and production output, procurement, logistics, risk mitigation strategies, sourcing, financial operations, packaging and distribution, transportation, and much more.

“The efforts that a number of the industry’s leading executives continue to take to improve their business’s functionality and in turn, progress the global supply chain—this was one of the main reasons we started the ‘Pros to Know’ awards in the first place,” confirmed Barry Hochfelder, Editor, Supply & Demand Chain Executive.

“The number of issues that can present themselves in one’s business truly run the gamut—from a dysfunctional product component found within a manufacturer’s tier three level of the supply chain to clarifying a business’s procurement strategy for reduced costs,” said Hochfelder. “It’s not always initially clear as to how broad the scale of the supply chain and its challenges really is. If there are those present in the industry who are working to overcome such issues and grow the global supply chain at the same time, they should get the recognition they deserve for their achievements.”

Now in its 13th year, the Supply & Demand Chain Executive “Pros to Know” awards recognize both ends of the supply chain. This includes honoring the providers; which includes individuals from software firms, service providers, consultancies or academia who helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community prepare to meet industry challenges.  Ross Elliott has received the “Pro to Know” provider award.

Submission information criteria for the “Pros to Know” provider entries included: what makes the nominee a provider “Pro to Know”, what the nominee believes to be key challenges facing their customers and their supply chains in the year ahead and how the nominee is working with their customers to meet those challenges, as well as how the nominee believes the supply chain, as a function, can be better aligned with a company’s broader corporate strategy.

“It is an honor to be recognized by Supply and Demand Chain Executive for my contributions at Accellos and to the supply chain industry as a whole,” said Elliot.  “We are proud of the success Accellos software has brought our customers and we will continue to bring software innovation to small and midsized businesses (SMB) and logistics service providers (LSP).”
